We are delighted to announce that we have received recognition in the newly published 2018 edition of Chambers High Net Worth (HNW) Guide. Private Wealth Law and two lawyers within the firm have received recommendations for expertise in their field:
Guy Perkins is the head of dispute resolution. He is experienced in Court of Protection and contentious probate cases. "I would particularly recommend him," says an interviewee; "he's got that calm assurance, but knows when to push hard to suit his client's advantage. He doesn't panic, he's unflappable and has a very good sense of cases. Guy has a very good grasp on detail, is commercially minded and is sensitive to clients' needs and interests. He always handles cases very smoothly and clients rightly feel in safe hands with him."
Allison Crossman acts on trust, estate administration and tax planning work, Powers of Attorney and Court of Protection matters. She is described by one source as "clear and knowledgeable with a very good bedside manner." Other interviewees say that she offers "efficiency, a caring service, excellent communication, integrity and professionalism."
COMMENTARY FROM THE CHAMBERS HNW GUIDE:
TWM Solicitors provides private client services including estate and trust administration, wealth management and tax planning. The team acts for wealthy families and individuals, entrepreneurs and business owners, and has recently handled Wills, Power of Attorney and Court of Protection matters.
"They're very widely spread, they've got lots of offices and they all seem to work well together," an interviewee reports, adding: "They share knowledge and seem to have a strong private client ethos. The private client practice is a big part of the firm and they have a broad spread of clients." A client says: "TWM's strengths include excellent communication skills; they provide prompt responses via email and post. They have patience and professionalism, approachability, good humour and kindness."
